Wow, just when I was losing hope in Deadheads!

The funny thing about Fox News and allies is that they are the ones who resort to emotional displays, smear, and rumour. I saw a mag interview with Huntington where he was backing off on 'The Clash" a bit, though I think there's a bit of truth to it, as much as Jihad Vs. McWorld anyway. It seem both are caricatures are to be avoided.
